50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind, Part 8

I always forget about these questions until I see Melissa do a post on hers. I’ve been doing these since July of 2010 so that should give a good indication on how fast I’m progressing through these. Ha!
36. Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?

Isn’t this what sets us apart from other animals? Our moral compass? I think we know, inherently, what is good and what is evil. What will lead us on the right path and what will take us down the wrong one. I do believe there are a lot of grey areas within good and evil, of course. And we all have our different definitions of it. So I guess my answer is yes and no, which really isn’t an answer, is it?

37. If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?

Yes. I would probably start graduate school, though, because I know I would get so bored without something challenging me.

38. Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?

I’ve never thought of myself who can say they are not afraid of hard work. I wish, but I think my weight would be in the normal zone, I would have ran those half-marathons I signed up for, and have more published articles to my name, if so. That said, I’m finding I enjoy being busy. I thrive on it and am more productive this way. When I don’t have much to do, I end up taking longer to complete tasks and cross items off my to-do list. I would rather do more of the things I enjoy. More writing, more reading, etc. If I could fill my life up with work I enjoy, I would be a happy lady. (And I have no idea what’s stopping me from doing this, other than pure laziness.)

39. Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?

No, not at all! That’s what so enjoyable about my job. Every day is different. Every day is filled with different projects and tasks, different problems to overcome, different meetings and conversations. When I worked at the preschool, the days differed but they were the same week after week. Mondays were slow and an easy breakfast to pass out, Tuesdays were for hurrying through breakfast and clean-up and supervising karate, Wednesdays were for getting through breakfast even faster to supervise dance, Thursdays were another slow day but a big breakfast to make, and Fridays were always up in the air. Every single week. The same thing. Over and over again.

I am so glad I no longer work there. (Although I do miss some of the kidlets and my co-workers.)

40. When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?

I feel like I march in the dark with a lot of things I strongly believe in. Saving myself for marriage, waiting until I’m married to live with my husband, being pro-life, being a Christian. But I’m comfortable being alone. I’m an introvert, I thrive being alone. Hopefully I’ll grab a few friends along the way who believe in these ideas as well. And if not, that’s okay. I’ll keep on marching.

I want to know: would YOU quit your job if you won a million dollars? Why or why not?
